It’s On Us ’17-’19
It’s On Us is a national campaign introduced by President Obama and Vice President Biden as a part of the “White House Task Force against Sexual Assault”. The campaign challenged students and staff to take the It’s On Us pledge which is:
- To recognize that non-consensual sex is sexual assault;
- To identify situations in which sexual assault may occur;
- To intervene in situations where consent has not or cannot be given; and
- To create an environment in which sexual assault is unacceptable and survivors are supported.
NMSU’s student government, athletic department and student-athletes, Greek organizations, Faculty Senate, Employee Council, and Administration have embraced It’s On Us and participate in events. It’s On Us pledging and education/outreach events are scheduled at various times throughout the year.
At NMSU we take Sexual Assault Seriously
